Re: 7 tooth steering problem

I guess it is the ADD in me, however when I read it before I just never understood his question, ...so I just moved on. Can someone write it again in one 10-word or less sentence? I would be glad to...

Re: Radius rod ball

If the axle assembly is out from underneath the frame, the axle assembly can be rotated 180 where the spring is now downward and the bottom side of the worn ball is facing upward. Doesn't this help...

Re: Bent frame--how bad is it?

Neil, a chain is only as strong as the weakest link. It doesn't matter if it is weaker by .0001%, ...however when there is enough stress, the likelihood of the next stretch or failure will be that...

Re: 1st model a brake job

Re: Remove crank gear

I have a special KR Wilson puller made specifically for removing these. It may be possible to use a 3-jaw puller if you have the clearance, however you should keep a torch away from that area. ...

Re: Radius rod ball

The factory print called for a machined spec of 1.498"-1.500".

I am more inclined to believe that 0.050" (-25 thousandths per side) is not a huge issue. Can it be better, ...yes. The biggest...

Re: Correct frame paint color

Cured Lacquer does have a harder shell finish than non-catalyzed synthetic Enamel.

Re: Engine

Something worth mentioning in this. There is a misconception that if an insert bearing goes bad, it can be replaced with another insert. While the logic of this seems like that should be so, the...

Re: Engine Temp IR and Moto Meter Reading

I feel many people try to overthink this. Use the overflow tube as your guide. If it is puking water, then there is an issue. Worrying whether it is operating at 170 or at 200 is moot IMHO. It...

Re: Parasitic Drain?

Mike, do you have a generator or alternator? Did you disconnect the wire from the alt/gen and see if your draw is eliminated? A self-exciting regulator in the alternator does have a draw.

Yes,...

Re: Engine color

Gary is correct with regard to mixing. You cannot mix lacquers into enamels for coloring.

With regard to engine paint, it takes pigments from two different primary colors to make green. The...
